Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta , a licensed veterinarian and am happy to answer your question.

I have a few questions to help me better assist you.

Is Rose drinking a lot more water?

Does she do this in her bed only or when lying down?

Is Rose eating more?

Thank you!

normal eating patterns, not sluggish at all, just drinks alot of water as she is active.

Thank you Michael for that information....

Rose could certainly be suffering from a Urinary Tract Infection but I would worry more about Rose developing Diabetes since this is the first sign. have your vet test Rose , Michael as soon as possible to rule this out. If she does have a UTI, treatment will be curative. If this is Diabetes, other treatments will have to be done.

This LINK can explain in more detail, Michael. Please let me know if you have other questions. I am happy to help.

Does that make sense to you, Michael?
